john paul or this pope -- is there any sense of appetite given these issues that are, you no, tearing apart the church in many ways, that there's going to be change. there a mandate for the new pope to do something that will be meaningful and effective? >> well, michael, actually, to be honest, it's not just most it is all of the 115 cardinals who will vote in the conclave who are were appointed by john paul ii or pope benedict xvi. the things like ordination of women in the priesthood, i do not believe it's realistic to think that whoever emerges from the sistine chapel is the next pope of the catholic church is going to overturn church teachings on those points. i do think what is perhaps not only realistic, but quite probable, is that one thing that is very much going to be on the minds of the cardinals who are electing the next pope, whatever else they do, it is critical to make sure whoever they pick has a profile of having clean hands on the crisis, that is, he has to come across as part of the solution to this crisis rather than part of the problem. >> john, thanks so much for
xvi and john paul ii so i don't think we'll see a situation of conflict. >> pelley: why can't the vatican seem to settle on a date for the conclave to begin to select the new pope? >> well, part of it is logistical. we have to wait until the pope actually leaves, which will happen on thursday. and then on friday we begin the period of the sette vacantis, the vacant seat. and this is all regulated within the vatican rules and they will need time, of course, to set up the sistine chapel, to set up the logistical aspects of holding a conclave within itself. and then they will need some time to meet in order to discuss exactly who their preferred candidate will be. so i think if we're looking at a week, that's moving pretty quickly for the vatican. >> pelley: delia gallagher in st. peter's square in rome, thank you so much. what's behind an increase in teen driving deaths? the supreme court takes up a challenge to a landmark civil rights law. and a hot air balloon tragedy when the "cbs evening news" continues. from washington. i have low testosterone. there, i said it. how did i
okay yesterday to me and predecessor pope john paul survived two assassination attempts, various cancer scares, crippling arthritis, and you had parkinson's as well. yet he battled on for 27 years. it does seem on the face of it very strange that pope benedict would walk away amid all the scandals being told and in the media of a secret gaye network of clergy inside the vatican, the financial mismanagement and the firing of archbishop cardinal keith o'brien of inappropriate behavior towards priests in the '80s. when you put it altogether, where are we left, do you think? >> i take the pope on his word. he is 85 years of age. his health is declining. he knows his health is going to continue to decline. i am not surprised. modern medicine can keep us physically alive long after we can do the kind of job that it requires to be, to have the strength, the mental ability to do that kind of job, so it was inevitable that sometime during the 21st century we have a pope resign for a reason like this. now, you know, with regards to all of these scandals and stories that are in the italian press,
? >> absolutely i do. liz: china, every treasury secretary going back to robert rubin, larry summers john snow, paul o'neill, geithner, paulson, they edged toward the chinese let your yuan, let your currency float freely in a fair and open market. minor, minor incremental improvements there but barely. at some point do you feel that the treasury department under this administration has to get a little bit stronger and push the chinese so it is a fairer situation where their currency floats freely like the rest of our currencies do in the open market? >> we have been very much engaged with the chinese over numbers of years. we continue to push them. not only our interest that they allow the ren minute by to fluctuate with market conditions. it is in their interest as we and they try to create conditions for balanced growth on a global basis. they need too do more. their currency is still undervalued but it has appreciated by 14% or so in real terms over the last few years. so that is progress. we will continue to stay at it as we engage the chinese on this he have important issue. liz: speaking
